January 24 2012 Quilting Newsletter


Hello, just me knocking on the screen to say hello and have a brief chat. I hope allís well at your place. Here in Australia, our school children have returned to school this week after a 6 week break over the summer. As a student I recall those 6 weeks went very very slowly and we always thought the holidays would never end. Now that Iím 50 something, 6 weeks flies by with the blink of an eye. Iím guessing Iím not the only one to feel this, I think it is a ďmature personsĒ dilemma.

Well, it is summer and the wet season here in Brisbane and we have had so much rain over the past two days or so. We had approximately 180ml in just one 24 hour period (which equates to approximately 7 inches). As you can imagine the roads are very awash, and itís wise to stay indoors and off the roads at present. This I find very easy to do. I have three quilt projects on the go, and one more that have come across my radar in the past day or so. So I will force myself to stay at home and quilt. LOL

I posted a tutorial last week for a quilt Iíve made several times. I call it All Squared Up and itís a very easy pattern, yet incredibly smart. I often make it using scraps, but for this tutorial Iíve chosen only three fabrics. Perhaps youíll find this tutorial useful. Hereís the link:

Iíve been spending some time on the computer looking for interesting items for you to check out. I had a conversation with Barbara the other day and she told me she really enjoys the goodies I deliver each week. Thanks Barbara for the feedback, Iím glad you enjoy the sites. So here are some for this week:
